I’d like to stop your social media newsfeed and share THIS:
When you live abroad, you often have to stay up late or get up early to watch important news coverage. Like last night, my husband stayed up and watched football before the debate, while I opted to take a power nap and set my alarm for the 2:00am showing.
I’ve seen a lot on my social media feeds about hating certain candidates and I just can’t handle it anymore. I was blown away by the last question of the debate, when asked “Name one thing that you respect about one another.” This is something that needs to be asked time and time again, not just from candidates, but from one another. What is something that UNITES us rather than divides us? What do we have in common? What redeeming qualities do we have? Everyone was once a sweet baby, a child loved and adored by their parents, or by someone. Many people are someone’s parent, who are adored and honored. Several people are someone’s sister or brother, someone who means the world to someone else. We need to remember this. We need to be grateful for the BEAUTY that we have in this world.
So, instead of being ashamed of the state of our nation, let’s use this as a wakeup call to love one another more. Go hug your loved ones, hell, go hug someone you don’t know!, take time to talk to your colleagues, take an interest in someone else. Find common ground. We don’t have to like one another, but we can find a way to love one another. We are all children of God.

I love you all.
